John Marsden Writing Topic #13
How much does your appearance tell us about you? (Including clothes)**
I’d say my appearance tells people that I am at ease with myself and how I look and also that I’m all about comfort and practicality. I don’t wear make-up, I constantly have my long hair tied back, I wear very little jewellery and I rarely wear nail polish.
Clothing wise, I work full-time and for work I wear the same kind of pants and top combo every day. I wear the same kind of combos as I have a long commute, not to mention I hate clothes shopping.
I wear walking shoes or joggers due to my archless feet and the need for orthotics to reduce the constant pain I feel due to having no arches.
